We had an enormous response to our Australia’s Favourite Family Business competition, uncovering some great Aussie businesses that are making an impact, but there can be only one winner.
Australia has voted… The winner of the inaugural Australia’s Favourite Family Business competition is…
Smoothie Bombs is a great Aussie business run by a mother and daughter team. It kicked off seven years ago when Mum, Cinzia Cozzolinos, a nutritionist by trade, was looking for a solution to combat her daughter’s fussy eating. Smoothie Bombs was born and now 100s of 1000s of Aussies enjoy the fruits of their labour.
Cinzia says the turning point for the business came when they received an order from the Royal Family of Dubai and hand-rolled their Bombs all day every day for a whole week.
Now they operate a factory and export their goods all over the world.
Small business and personal finance expert David Koch said the breadth of businesses and services that took part in the competition showed the talent and skills of Australia’s small business owners. Koch congratulated all the family businesses that entered the competition and described their journeys as inspiring.
“Family businesses are the heart of the nation – they provide so many of our essential services and deserve to be celebrated. Smoothie Bombs is a wonderful example of Aussie ingenuity and passion. I’m looking forward to learning more about their journey when they appear on Kochie’s Business Builders next year.”
Look out for Smoothie Bombs when they appear on Kochie’s Business Builders TV show in 2019.
Congratulations to all our finalists for providing fabulous products and services.
